We were just denied in Ghana, CO said she is not convinced of the legitimacy of our relationship. What can we do? Anyone please

Mine was denied about 3 weeks ago and this is what I did.

1. I contacted my senators office.

They gave me an email to the person who handles immigration and told me to detail everything that happened, what the CO said, and include most of the evidence my wife took, as an attachment. I detailed everything that happened and included lots of photos, marriage certificate, our child birth certificate, etc... and sent it to them. I gave them about 2 days and called his office back. They said they saw the email and that the things i sent to them were pretty convincing so they will send an email the the Chief consulate. Not sure what the email will say and not sure what will come out of it. However, its better than doing nothing, and it gives me peace of mind that I at least doing something.

2. I emailed the Immigration division of the embassy in Ghana.

I sent an email to the immigration division of the embassy with the attention supervisor. Included lots of evidence, what the CO said,etc... I mean i sent lots and lots of evidence with that email. I am hoping someone sensible will review it and have a talk with someone who can do something. I am not sure if anything will come out if it but once again, it gives me peace of mind that I am not just sitting and waiting.

You can just wait till USCIS contacts you requesting for more evidence or whatever they need you to do. Nothing much you can really do at this stage.

I am so sorry to hear that. We were denied the K-1 on June 8, I have started over with the CR-1.

I am just speechless at how the embassy thinks a marriage isn't real. As Volta-Region said please contact your Senator's office they can help. My Senator's office has been involved in our cases since 2014.

I hope something can be done for all of us going through the Embassy in Ghana. It seems all they do is deny couples. Again I am so sorry to hear such news.

I wish you the best.

Do what Volta Region suggested. Slim chance it will work but you never know.

Next wait until you get a NOID/NOIR letter from USCIS, this can take 4-6+ months, depending on when Ghana actually returns the case.

Once the petitioner receives the letter you can send whatever you have to overcome what you were denied for and if USCIS is satisfied

with your response it goes back to the embassy with recommendation to approve. The CO can then either approve or refuse to issue the visa

again.

1. Did you front load your petition ?

2. What did you include as evidence ?

3. What were the questions focused on ?

4. How frequent did you visit ?

5. How long did you know each other before you married ?

Figure out what they didn't like and overcome it with factual evidence.

Ghana is nuts returning all these cases, you all need to contact your representatives and file a complaint besides having them help you

with your cases. We all get that Ghana is high fraud but this is ridiculous to refuse so many cases.

What the hell is wrong with CO in Ghana!! Bad newsvall the time making people suffer separations from their love once unjustly. Please, vj members, let's fast and pray for Ghanians! It's too much.

Yes it is to much!!! We are separated for years and years from our loved one and it's ridiculous! They believe no relationship is real. If your lucky and catch the CO on a good day you may get approved. I will never understand their reasoning at all for the denials.

For me and my husband we have been apart for almost two years...our last option is for me to move to Ghana.

That true Ghana is a hard Embassy, we do need to be able to complain on these CO. Its so many people here in VJ doing the right things and still getting turned down. People don't have all this money to keep traveling to Africa. But I think are playing a stalling game for us. In other Embassy they have fraud also I am just wondering why they don't do the other countries like that.
